Coney Island

Shannon and I visited Coney Island.

We swam, ate at the original Nathan’s, rode the Cyclone and strolled.

I had Coney on my mind after reading a Village Voice while visiting a few months ago.

Shake Shack in Madison Square Park

Today, I beat a rush that came on for the famed Shake Shack in Madison Square Park in lower Manhattan.

Wearing a Phillies hat and reading the latest Village Voice on Coney Island, I devoured a delicious burger with all the fixins, french fries and a vanilla milkshake.

It’s a great use of public space, and I was reminded how much I love eating something delicious with something good to read.

I was in Manhattan for an appearance by my boss on the Today Show.
